I need to find IP address of my Raspberry PI to further use in Putty, I have connected the ethernet. I made changes in cmdline.text file of the Raspbian wheezy OS, allocated IP address to it (ip=169.254.210.40::169.254.210.55), based on IP v-4 address of my ethernet adapter was (169.254.210.55) which all I followed from a video on youtube. When I tried to ping the address no response came. Hence I am doing something wrong.
All I want is to run my pi on laptop, I have putty and Xming installed but without knowing the IP of pi I can't proceed further.
Also this is the first boot( I mean I have not installed anything using a monitor and HDMI)
DESPERATELY NEED HELP!!!
